Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen said on Tuesday that Cambodia will welcome fully vaccinated foreign tourists from all countries.
Tourism destinations including Sihanoukville and Koh Rong Island in Preah Sihanouk province and Dara Sakor vacation zone of Koh Kong province will be the first to receive the vaccinated tourists.
After having been hit by the COVID-19 pandemic crisis for about two years, Cambodia will welcome all foreign tourists fully vaccinated from Nov. 30 this year, he said.
Siem Reap city, home of world famed Angkor Wat Temple, is set to reopen for vaccinated tourists earlier next year.
Fully vaccinated foreign tourists are required to stay in the ‘safe and green destination’ without quarantine, the Ministry of Tourism stated in a statement issued on the same day.
According to the Ministry of Tourism, foreign tourists can enter Cambodia by air without quarantine, provided they have been fully vaccinated and have evidence of pre-flight negative test results, booked hotels, and insurance.
They are also required to take a ‘Rapid Test’ for COVID-19 upon arrival and another ‘PCR Test’ a day before they move to other destinations or leave Cambodia, added the source.
